Offer: Africa Regional Fellowships "Be the Peace Agent"

The simplification of life is one of the steps to inner peace. A persistent simplification will create an inner and outer well-being that places harmony in one's life. Come and experience that African simplification of inner and outer peace.

After successfully organizing two major events, last September, in Kenya and Nigeria, Peace Revolution will come back to Africa to organize Regional fellowships for the first time in Africa. Each regional fellowship will bring together 25 young leaders to learn and exchange during three day retreat. Each fellowship will be an opportunity to engage African young leaders and support their growth as change-makers in peace-building in their communities. The fellowships will include activities, meditation and workshops providing the participants with new skills and perspectives in peace work. Its main focus shall be on youth, peace and self-development.

For East Africa, the fellowship will take place in Kenya from 13th - 15th September 2013. Participants should be from Burundi, Chad, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Somalia, Somaliland, Tanzania and Uganda. (DL 22 August)

For West Africa, " Soyons des Agents de la Paix" fellowship will take place in Senegal from 27th - 29th September, 2013. Participants should be from Nigeria, Mali, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo, Mauritania, Niger, Gabon, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Code d'Ivoire, Republic of Congo, Ivory Coast and Liberia.
